Print Film

Looking for an inexpensive way to transfer your video to film? All you need is an inkjet printer and some transparent 8mm or 16mm film. It’s not going to look pretty, but you’re going to get a great gritty version of your video that’s ready to be projected.

A different technique I saw in school was to shoot, cut and then project a video in High Def. Film the projection with a finely tuned 16mm camera and you’ll have your video in beautiful 16mm format.
